It's not spring yet, technically. Spring - the vernal equinox - doesn't arrive until 7:02 AM EDT on March 20th. 9 days, 11 hours and 50-odd minutes after the puck drops tonight at Times Palace between the Bolts and the Habs... Yet the annual rite of passage occurs around 2 AM this morning: we spring forward and Daylight Savings Time commences. You'll lose an hour, seemingly, for a day or so while gaining an hour of sunlight through November. Right about now it truly is daylight savings time though for the Lightning, as in save-the-season time. Daylight, in this instance, is playing hockey. The Bolts want to keep sunset from happening until much, much later... Like June.
